Goofs

When the boy's mother enters his bedroom, he closes down a window on his computer, leaving the screen showing the usual blue-ish background in certain shots. In the long-distance shots from across the other side of the bedroom, the monitor is no longer on, then in another close-up the monitor still shows the blue background. See more »

Mawkish, cliché-driven, rites-of-passage movie
7 March 2006 | by (London, England, EU) – See all my reviews

This is the story of Mike (a troubled teenager from L.A.) forced, by his wealthy parents, to spend a summer holiday with his grumpy grandpappy. They set off together across the United States on horseback, via the school of hard knocks, discovering the good life, and teaming up with a bunch of cowboys. During the course of the journey (and accompanied by a great deal of squirming from this viewer), Mike is transformed from a poor spoilt rich kid into a young good ole boy.

Rousing performances from Richard Crenna (as the grandfather) and David Carradine (as the trail boss). Ben Cardinal plays the obligatory Native American with tight-lipped panache and baby-faced Patrick David turns in a credible performance as Mike's new best friend.
